Special Focus: How AI is automating writing jobs

  • by

This week’s issue focuses solely on the state of the art of AI-generated writing — and how it’s automating writing jobs.

Here’s the intro to the in-depth piece — along with a link to the full story by Joe Dysart:

Amidst the hoopla of all things artificial intelligence, writers are increasingly wrestling with a hard truth: It appears robots are coming for their jobs.

Little more than a plaything of researchers a decade ago, AI and automated robots in 2021 are now regularly churning-out countless news articles, business reports, opinion pieces, sports stories, ad slogans, newsletters, press releases – and more – on a daily basis.

According to highly respected research organization Gartner, all of this AI and related technology will automate production of 30% of all content found on the Worldwide Web by 2022.

Observes Mayur Bhatt, marketing head, SEO Services Guru: “It is only a matter of time before algorithms are able to write articles on any topic and for any target group.”

It’s no wonder writers across the globe are fretting: When do these writing machines show-up at my workplace?

Evangelists of writing driven by AI insist the robots are simply here ‘to serve humanity.’

Robots will do the drudgery work, they say.

Writers will be freed-up to engage in more interesting, more in-depth and more creative work.

Says Lisa Gibbs, news partnerships director, The Associated Press, one of the earliest pioneers of AI-generated news-writing: “The work of journalism is creative.

“It’s about curiosity, it’s about storytelling, it’s about digging and holding governments accountable.

“It’s critical thinking, it’s judgment — and that is where we want our journalists spending their energy.”

Perhaps.

But for the many writers and editors who have already lost their jobs to AI, that idyllic future is a tough sell.
